The painting & Inspo photos behind it :
It was a vast, mesmeric show of 94 looks, boys as well as girls, each one of them densely packed with detail, embellishment, and referencing art, interiors, and the piled-up layers of the archaeologies of British youth culture and street markets…animal-symbol embroideries to the glittery bombers, down to the embroidered bags and pearl-studded loafers…Wedgwood prints, china-dog appliqués, or punk-strapped shoes…a more sincere compliment to English tradition, as filtered through the hyper-colored, hyper-eclectic sensibilities of an anglophile Italian.

Gucci Resort ’17
Alessandro Michele has proved time and time again that Gucci is such a visual dream for a fashion illustrator!
If Cavalli didn’t already make you swoon over the flowy yellow dress that Bey wore while reclaiming her power smashing cars with her baseball bat, he surely will now with his resort 2017 collection. Florals, leather, fringe, fur, off the shoulder cuts, trailing ribbons and long hair parted down the center definitely gives a nod towards celebrating the 70s. We know our festival chic attire isn’t going out of style soon.
Here are my top pics!
An ode to the 70s: Chunky heels, bright colors & patterns, fringe, fur and effortlessly tousled hair, a beautiful combination of haute couture and comfort.
Easy, flow-y, summer dresses that need no accessorizing to make a statement. These silk dresses are cinched, ruffled and made to hang off of the model’s frame effortlessly. These dresses make a statement, but WE are certainly wearing the dresses and they are not wearing us. I feel like any girl could pull off a gorgeous summer RC dress.
The long hair that’s parted down the middle doesn’t take much effort to style, and the fringe finishes off these looks with a great bohemian 70s vibe.
Boho meets the Kendall Jenner choker trend. Can’t lie, Kendall slays with her gorgeous silk & lace chokers on the red carpet. Pair your choker with a poncho and some easy denim and you’re festival ready — without looking slutty!
This was my all time favorite look from the collection! *Swoon*
Here we can see that sheer black silks, lace and fabrics that are paired with florals is a HUGE trend setter right now that isn’t going anywhere. We’ve seen it in Dior, D&G, Chanel, Balmain, Lanvin, and now Cavalli. Cheeky sheer dresses, slips and lingerie are seen everywhere and I love how Cavalli paired it with florals, bead work, chokers, pant suits and 70s hair.
These dresses could easily be worn at a red carpet event, but I love that the hair was barely touched to dress down the look. I personally love it when a beautiful dress is worn in combination with untouched, tousled hair. It’s the *perfect* contradiction in achieving that “Blake Lively” effortless beauty (seriously, she’s notoriously known for pairing aan undone ponytail with a Chanel dress on the red carpet, and I’m obsessed with it). Undone hair takes the “prom” out of black tie attire.
